It's normal to get first-time jitters at a new studio, especially if you're new to Pilates.
You might be thinking... What do I wear? What should I bring? Where do I park?
We want you to feel confident and excited about your first visit with us, so we put together a list of how to prepare and what to expect for your first class at Studio Be.
What To Wear
Think close-fitting, comfortable exercise clothes of lightweight cotton or breathable fabric. You’ll spend a lot of the session on your back, so wear a loose, comfortable ponytail or bun in your hair.
We suggest you practice Pilates in grip socks, which can be purchased in the studio. If you choose to go barefoot, we ask that you use the provided baby wipes to wipe your feet.
Please remove large or dangling jewelry and avoid clothing with zippers for safety and comfort.
What To Bring
We provide water and towels. Please leave your water bottle with your personal items in the lobby area in the cubbies provided. (Water bottles are necessary for Barre class in the Ocean room only.)
The less you bring, the better!
When Your Arrive
Please arrive at least five minutes early. You can park in the parking lot, and street parking is available when lot is full.
When you arrive, make sure to sign in on the iPad and put your personal items in the cubbies.
Choose any reformer and let your instructor know if you have any injuries so they can help you make modifications if necessary.
Your instructor is there to help guide you through your first class and answer any questions you may have, so please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
Most importantly, relax and have fun. We're looking forward to having your radiant energy in the studio!
